Coronavirus numbers tick up across the nation

Dr. Janette Nesheiwat says that cases of COVID-19 are going up partially due to increased testing. Dr. Nesheiwat also points to irresponsibility as large groups gather to protest and states begin to reopen their economies.

She points to some people who are refusing to adhere to CDC guidelines – wear a mask, wash your hands and stay home if you’re sick; and says the key to remember is it’s a highly opportunistic, highly transmittable virus. One protester not wearing a mask could be a ‘super spreader’ and infect multiple people.
